20,000 Apple iPhone 5 units sold in Russia over the weekend
While 20,000 units moved doesn't seem like a large number, it does represent 40% of all legally imported smartphones in the country. In addition, the majority of legit sales in the country were for the 32GB and 64GB variant of the phone. Those who wanted the 16GB model were more apt to purchase it from the "grey market".
On Friday, the Apple iPhone 5 will become available in a few more countries like Egypt, Barbados, and Vietnam. As we mentioned on Sunday, with the phone already available in more than 100 countries, this is the fastest rollout yet of an iPhone model.
